Bevolo Gas and Electric Lights (also called Bevolo or Bevolo Lights) is a family business that manufactures traditional and antique lighting. It was founded in 1945 by Andrew John Bevolo, a craftsman who worked to help build the famous New Orleans Higgins boats for World War II and the first Sikorsky helicopter. It is located in New Orleans' French Quarter. The current owner of Bevolo is Andrew John Bevolo III (Drew Bevolo), the grandson of its founder. The lights Bevolo manufactures are usually made from copper by hand. Bevolo lights are produced by hand-riveting and include copper and brass accessories. The company offers a wide variety of light fixtures, however, Bevolo produces other products as well, e.g. mailboxes.
In the 20th century, A. Hays Town, an architect, redesigned the original French Quarter light from the early 17th century's European architecture. Andrew John Bevolo was commissioned to build the light. It officially became a company in 1945.
